The Filtering of America: Legal Immigration

Matthew 25:35 – For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

One of President Trump’s advisors is the infamous Stephen Miller. This young man appears to have a true heartfelt resentment against people who don’t look, speak or think like the “Trump” base.

In other words, Stephen Miller seems to be about turning the hand of time back to what he may believe was an all white nation.

America has never been predominately Caucasian, and that is a record of fact. Nor has only Caucasians been responsible for the building and prosperity of this nation.

We the people of all nationalities, races, ethnic and gender makeup have contributed to making this nation great and powerful.

So, when Trump and his advisors, i.e., Bannon and Miller push their white nationalist agenda on the American people, their needs to be an outcry from all corners of this nation.

Just yesterday during the daily White House briefing, Mr. Miller got into a heated discussion with CNN correspondent Jim Acosta over the new Immigration policy  Reforming American Immigration for a Strong Economy (RAISE) Act.

What is an affront to any person with common sense, Miller was saying that this proposed RAISE Act will be “saving jobs for minorities and black people.”

This ploy of using a handy “race card” to get a pass to discriminate against other ethnic groups do not play well with blacks folks…and it never will.

We got to recognize that the filtering of America is only a underhanded way to play the discrimination card. And Trump is the head dealer.

Not only are we looking to see our diversity disappear but the proposed RAISE Act is just another wedge issue that will tear us apart rather than find ways of uniting us.

We should always remember that Americans for the most part are immigrants (and former slaves) who lives were shaped by our past generations coming from all parts of the world, as Ireland, England, Germany, Africa, Israel, Middle East, Poland, Cuba, India, Asia, Mexico, South America,  West Indies, Italy and many other countries in this world.

Finally, I will say this. If anyone can unite us it sure isn’t man on earth but Christ in heaven.

The Bible has a lot to say about immigrants and immigration.  In fact, the Hebrew word ger, the closest word to our concept of an immigrant, appears 92 times in the Old Testament alone.   We encourage you to do a Bible study on the topic of immigrants in Scripture…more (World Relief)
